Eye of Polyphemus: Sorry, But I Could Not Care Less About John Lennon

Eye of Polyphemus: Sorry, But I Could Not Care Less About John Lennon

John Lennon was very much over-rated!
It is not like he invented a guitar, or a style of music, or had black guys in his band...
He just gave us stupid glasses, stupid boots, stupid hair cuts and YOKO the harpie!

  2. I had to delete my first comment due to spelling errors I could not edit or tolerate. Budde, I agree there was a lot of stupid stuff and bad music in the 70s but I happened to like John Lennon's music (most of it). He is no Elvis Presley but still one of my better memories of the 70s.

  3. Ralph, You know I could have gotten a little carried away with the sound of my own typing and the NPR special. I think John Lennon is just over-rated and I don't like the BS that surrounds him. I actually like a lot of his music and I have a tape of Walls and Bridges somewhere. So, nothing personal, just me getting carried away. I'm not a huge Elvis fan though either...

  4. Last night at the supper table I told my wife as the talking head was saying "...everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news that John Lennon had died...".

    "You know I DON'T REMEMBER where I was or what I was doing when he died, because he just wasn't that important to me or my life." It's still true today.

    Maybe if he had discovered a cure for cancer or something equally profound, then maybe, but he was a drug using musician/song writer. Nothing more, nothing less...

    All The Best,
    Frank W. James

  5. Strangely enough... I remember the very field I was working when I heard the NPR story on the death of John Lennon that spring... I don't know why.

  6. I used to like the Beatles but never could listen to any but Ringo after the went separate ways. Once I heard Outlaw Country I never went back to listen to Rock. The radio in the 67 Firebird was tuned to 1080 KWJJ instead of 620 KGW but now one is talk and the other is sports and there's nothing worth listening to.
